Struggling today with work
Back in December one of the clerks retired and we hired a new employee. I’m in charge of training her and it’s been going really great!
In the past our office environment has been pretty negative. I’ve been guilty of this behavior as well. But since our new hire I’ve made it my goal not to get sucked into the office drama and negativity.
I’ve actively complemented and encouraged others where before I was lackadaisical.
Today I am struggling. I don’t want to fall back into bad habits but damn this one co-worker sure is trying my patience. I’ve talked about her before, she is the office know-it-all and has to always be right and always have the last word and holy fuck she is bugging the shit out of me.
Our printer has two drawers that feed paper. One of these drawers isn’t feeding the paper and it’s causing it to jam up every four pages. She insists it’s the type of paper and not the feeder. Here is the thing, that same paper feeds through the other paper drawer just fine so common sense tells me it’s not the paper, it’s the drawer….
She won’t call the maintenance people, which is her job. I’ve offered to do it for her if she is too busy. Nope nope nope. She won’t do it because it’s the paper! Not the feeder!
I use this printer multiple times during the day and every time I print something I have to go to the printer and tell it to load each paper from the 2nd drawer. It’s a huge waste of time.
Just call the gotdamn maint. people FFS!
